Great restaurant, bar with spectacular ocean views.. Look for our new sign. Rated 5 Stars for 10+ years... and TOP 10% "around the globe". World-Famous fish & chips, great cheeseburgers & fries, onion rings, chicken wings... and other sandwiches, too... With LOW prices, $5 to $11.50 USD. We have a family friendly atmosphere. OPEN 7 days a week. We have a full roof... that means there is never a problem when it rains!!! Check us out by using the website link, too. I look forward to meeting and greeting you and making you feel right at home. I am usually at my bar, 6 days a week (not Sundays). But have my waitress call me if you want to meet me in person... my pleasure. Big Lee

Big Lee's is a favourite stop on the boardwalk. Food, drinks, spectacular atmosphere day and evening. Probably the most important of all is the genuine hospitality you will receive from not only Big Lee but also his lovely wife and staff. I highly recommend a...visit to the maleacon and Big Lee's Beach bar.More

This was our second trip to Big Lee's Beach Bar. First time I got the Cheeseburger and fries. Absolutely amazing. This time I got fish and chips while my daughter got chicken breast strips. We both loved them. All food is fresh and made to...order. The fries are hand made and the fish is beer battered. We also got the beer battered onion rings which were also delicious. We highly recommend. The owner is always there and always a pleasure to speak with.More

I was really looking forward to my first visit here and it did not disappoint. This place is a gold mine!! We were greeted at the door by very friendly staff. The beer was very cold, so cold the first mouthful almost hurt.....you know the...feeling. View from the table of the ocean was fabulous. The food is top notch and very hot a fresh. The fish and chips are a MUST!! Meeting the owner, Big Lee, was also enjoyable. His story of how he got to where he is today is nothing short of amazing. Looking forward to future visits whenever I visit POP again.More
